At Terror Street and Agony Way - Signed

1,800.00

Charles Bukowski | Los Angeles: Black Sparrow Press, 1968.

First edition. Tear in back cover at spine (see photos). Includes a delicious, profanity-laced inscription from Bukowski to a young poet.  Second state of the paperback issue where the misspelling on the front cover has been corrected with a white label. According to Krumhansl there were only 18 copies of the 1st state with the misprint and 747 copies of the Second state.

This is the Bukowski collection that almost wasn't, as the original stack of poems that were to become At Terror Street and Agony Way were rumored to have been thrown away by Bukowski's friend John Thomas. However, Bukowski had made a tape recording of the poems, and it was possible to transcribe them. It was printed by John Martin at Black Sparrow Press in 1968. This was the longest collection of poetry that Bukowski had published to date, and some said the poetry read as though Bukowski just needed a break.
